Rep. Ilhan Omar returns home to cheers,
vows to be a 'nightmare' for Trump

Original Article

Congresswoman Ilhan Omar was greeted at the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport by more than a hundred supporters -- constituents, organizers and well-wishers, carrying homemade "stand with Ilhan" signs welcoming her back to Minneapolis after a week of racist attacks from President Donald Trump, who told four Democratic congresswomen of color to "go back " to where they came from, and supporters at a campaign rally, who chanted "send her back" on Wednesday night. (Snip) Omar was defiant, criticizing Trump’s "fascist" policies, and promised to continue standing up for her beliefs, pointing to her Medicare-for-All town hall this evening. "Everybody is talking

Ilhan Omar is waaaaaaaay more a problem for Pelosi and the DNC than she will ever be for Trump. If anything, she's the gift that keeps giving.

100 supporters is pretty weak for a greeting party. And Im certain the lefties in her office were trying to mobilize.

As the Somali strumpet used to be able to say about her former husband, "He ain't heavy, he's my brother." The genius of DJT has hogtied the Dimocrats to her and the other three, and there is no way for Pelosi to break free, unless she voids their committee assignments, just as was done to Rick Traficant. (Is Alyssa just a hanger-on to the other three? I never heard of her until now. I do worry about Alyssa's health, given the odd proportions to her body - her spine must be a wreck.)

Maybe Trump and supporters meant for them to go back to Minnesota. Maybe the send them back meant to send them home from Congress. The shouters did not say. The Democrats spun the narrative, unfavorably. My own feeling is that I would like to send the Democrats back to their maker for a do over.

She is part of the legacy of BHO. He settled the Somalis in Minnesota as a group for this very purpose. Any good community organizer knows that you must have a group with which to agitate, get them all riled up and encourage them to run for office in a district that was created for that very thing. The evil machinations of the boy king cannot be underestimated. He and his cabal were a force for evil. This particular little jihadi underestimates the American people when she believes they will stand for a Muslim bashing this country. 9/11 is not some distant memory. It is as fresh as the day it happened for many of us. The loss on that day will never be forgotten or forgiven. Omar is the poster gal for anti-American Muslims of which there are many and they are not here to assimilate because they do not love this country. They are here to disrupt and infiltrate and certainly have not earned the trust of the American people.

I am from the Mid-West and can't imagine what has happened to Minnesota!!!!!!!!!! Or at least parts of it. (And I am sure this was a staged event as she stepped off the plane, by the way.) I talked to oe Minnesotan who voted for Omar and her reason, from what I could see, was pure virtue signaling. It's about time she and others stop signaling and start looking at what their Rep. is purporting.

Barack Obama facilitated between 80 to 90 thousand Somali “refugees” to resettle in the Minneapolis-St Paul area during his time as President. So about 100 leftist supporters going to the airport to meet Omar when she returned there does not reflect much political support, and remember beyond the current Somali population, Minnesota has always been a liberal Democrat supporting place.

I think this Somali person has now officially replaced Michelle Obama as the female second coming of Cleopatra. Too bad that her clothing doesn't come in wild colors and styles so we'll have to be satisfied with standard muslim garb. At least she has a pretty face but, like Michelle, it all falls apart when she opens her filthy mouth.

The article said 100 supporters greeted her at the airport BUT 500 gave her a standing ovation at her event. Seems like we have a little Somalia right here in Minnesota thanks to Democrat administrations that imported them as so-called refugees. So, now we have 600 imported American hating Somalis cheering Omar. BTW not her real name as we know. This incestuous fraud and her 600 America haters should be sent packing back to Somalia.

It seems that Rep. Omar married her own brother (!!) in a sham marriage scheme to gain entry into the United States. Apparently she believes the law doesn´t apply to her, and yet she may well be charged with multiple felonies, Regardless of the outcome of the trial, she may find herself deported very abruptly for having violated immigration law in such a grotesque way.

The corn here is as high as a candidate's eye — at least the shorter ones like Pete Buttigieg and Julian Castro — though the harvest is a bit late because of heavy spring rains.

Dollar stores have never been more popular. Yet a wave of cities and towns have passed laws curbing the expansion of Dollar General and Dollar Tree, which bought Family Dollar in 2015.

President Trump’s approval ratings are under water in national polls. His position for re-election, on the other hand, might not be quite so bleak. His advantage in the Electoral College, relative to the national popular vote, may be even larger than it was in 2016, according to an Upshot analysis of election results and polling data. That persistent edge leaves him closer to re-election than one would think based on national polls, and it might blunt any electoral cost of actions like his recent tweets attacking four minority congresswomen. For now, the mostly white working-class Rust Belt states, decisive in

Omar’s brief congressional career has been dogged by accusations — which she has denied — that she married a male relative, possibly her brother.

The mood of left-wing Democrats might be neatly summarized by the media coverage of last weekend’s Netroots Nation conference. The progressive left seems poised to consign former President Barack Obama to the dustbin of history. Moreover, supposedly woke agitators do not seem to care how their exercise might affect black voters who comprise a crucial part of their 2020 electoral strategy. According to Vox, “Progressive activists know their enemy in the 2020 Democratic primary: Joe Biden.” As Vox notes, “Some activists at Netroots conceded they would support Biden in a general election if they had no other choice.” Dean Obeidallah of CNN and The Daily Beast finds this concession

On Friday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel claimed President Trump’s remarks about the “Squad” — made up of Reps.

In the nine months beginning with November 2016, about 3.2% to 3.6% more preterm births to Latina women occurred above the levels of preterm births that would have been expected had the election not occurred, suggests the study, published in the medical journal JAMA Network Open on Friday.

Democrats are calling for authorities to evaluate security for Rep.

That takes this to a whole different level.” Trump later disavowed the chant, and Omar reportedly told reporters Thursday she was not worried about her personal safety.
